2010 Grand Cru Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Still just in its malo when I tasted, and showing oak a little, probably as a result. Rich, full and gutsy tannins, and then a really harmonious sweet fruit which powers through. Very different style, all in low level power rather than top-notes, at least for now. Lots of richness. L&S (Dec 2011)

Domaine Bernard Dugat-Py
Domaine Dugat-Py, along with only DRC, Roumier, Rousseau and Leroy, is rated in the top Three Star category by the 'Classement' published by the Revue du Vin de France. These are the essence of robust Burgundy, wines of huge scale and concentration. Patience is required, so lay down a few grand bottles for your dotage.
The 2010 Mazoyères-Chambertin explodes from the glass with tons of mineral-driven energy and vibrancy. It is a striking wine layered with saline notes that wrap around the red fruit with tons of intensity, conveying a sense of urgency that is thrilling. Bright red berries, flowers, mint and licorice saturate the palate on the piercing finish. The use of 100% whole clusters gives the wine much of its aromatic brilliance and delineation. This is another 2010 that is clearly built for the long haul as evidenced by the huge tannic finish. Rating: 95-97 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Nov 2013)
There's more than a hint of Laphroaig-like peatiness in the ok here, but the underlying fruit is superb: plums, blackcurrants and attractive ginger spice. The tannins need time to soften, yet this is a great wine for the cellar. 2018-30 Rating: 97-97 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Mar 2012)
Ruby-red color. Pungent aromas of blackberry, violet and crushed-stone minerality, with coffee and game nuances emerging with air. Dense, saline and youthfully imploded, with a powerful chalky minerality currently dominating the middle palate. Finishes with outstanding salty persistence and excellent cut.

This is riper still yet the fragrant and densely fruited nose remains beautifully fresh with its distinct spice, floral and earth notes. The exceptionally rich and almost painfully intense flavors ooze copious amounts of dry extract that partially buffers the extremely firm but not hard tannins that shape the textured and fabulously long finish. This is a classic Mazoyères that is not nearly as refined as the Charmes but it’s bigger, longer and more complex and overall, there is just more here. Magnificent in every respect and built with a 20 year aging curve in mind. 2028+ Rating: 93 - 96 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2012)
100% new oak. 100% whole bunch. Not yet racked. Very rich and great masculine stuff. So much here! Very firm and yet so packed with fruit that it seems deceptively accessible at first. Definitely worth waiting for. Very positive and straightforward. Bitter chocolate and minerals. This is the masculine cuvée, if Charmes is the feminine one. 2018-2030 Rating: 18 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2012)
